Suppress automatic header when editing


Whenever I edit any code in the database I am always getting an automatic header appended. It is a total pain to always have to delete the header before I start editing. I have gone through the settings and I can’t find an option to shut if off. An example of the problem is below

– Database Version :
– Database Compatible Level :
– Script Compatible Level :
– Toad Version :
– DB Connect String : TEST
– Schema : MERCH
– Script Created by : CUSTOM
– Script Created at : 8/21/2018 2:56:27 PM
– Notes :

– Object Counts:
– Triggers: 1


I can reproduce that. I don’t know when it started doing that, but I’ll take care of it for next beta.

By the way, you can just ignore the header, you don’t have to edit it out… It won’t go into the database since it’s just a comment at the top of the script.


Thank you.
re:Unrelated - 8i! Wow!
They say we can finally upgrade our 8i retail system sometime in the next 6 months. I sure hope they do. While I started coding on Oracle 5 (novell system, yes i’m old) I love oracle 12 and I can’t wait. I support 8, 10, 11,and 12.


Oracle 5! Double Wow! I’ve only been using Oracle since 7.3.4.


Workaround: From Schema Browser, on the right hand side, click the 3rd toolbar button above the source listing to send that text to editor.
